These are critical times in the drinking water industry. After watching record storms wash away the worst drought of our lifetimes, Sacramento is penning new water regulations that could change the way we do business moving forward.

Jeffrey Kightlinger, General Manager and Chief Executive Officer of The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD), will address the aftermath of California’s historic drought, new water-use regulations and potential new sources of water at a Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) Water Policy & Dinner this Thursday, March 30.

Our dinner will be held at a new venue, The Great Wolf Lodge, in Garden Grove, CA. The indoor water park, resort hotel and collection of restaurants, sets the industry standard for green initiatives and water use efficiency.

In addition to the program, MWDOC will also be celebrating the storied career of Russ Behrens of Best Best & Krieger, who has served as legal counsel to MWDOC and a half dozen other water agencies for more than 4 decades.

The reception will begin at 5:30 p.m., and the meeting will adjourn at 8 p.m. The Great Wolf Lodge is located at 12681 Harbor Blvd., Garden Grove. Tickets are $90 and available at the door or by registering here.
